BEFORE YOU LEAVE

Wait,
Don't leave,
I will not take long,
Listen to what I have to say,


It will only take a while,
I promise I won't take your time,
Please stay.
Listen for a while.

I know what i did was wrong,
I judged you before I knew the truth,
It was wrong and I admit,

My anger got the better of me,
My jealousy left a scare,
The pain and hurt consumed me,
My assumption clouded my judgment .

Before you go,
Just do me one favor,
Kiss me the way you used to,
Hold me like you still love me.

You are my inspiration,
You are my world,
I adore you,
I worship the ground you walk on.

Don't let my sins,
Get in the way of our love.
Don't let my past,
Rule the present.

Your mind is made up,
This time there is no turning back,
I nailed the last nail into the coffin,
At least let me grieve,
Before you bury it.

A Poem by Thelma Migue.

  2. love is eternal, love is beyond the coffin,
    love atones and if it not then it would be not.

    for a moment i will grieve for our sins,
    for a moment i shall fight our demons and listen to our angels,

    forever i will make you smile,at a difficult lesson well learnt.

    "good work there salut!"

  5. sometimes people need to part in order to grow

    at these times you need to let the tears flow

    you know after winter comes the new growth of spring and then the fruit of summer.

  7. This reminds me of an old Blackstreet song i like. Sometimes no matter what you say there is nothing that can keep someone who has made up their mind in a relationship.
